4 for 2024! | A Look At The Recruits We’re Most Anticipating 

June 15th was an exciting day for gymnastics fans as the next generation of NCAA superstars could finally begin connecting with colleges around the country to find their future home. You know what that means—verbal commitments are right around the corner! Here are some of the top names to put on your radar as we look forward to commitment announcements in the weeks and months ahead!


 

Avery Neff – Olympus Gymnastics

There has been a lot of buzz about Avery Neff lately and for good reason! With a career high of a perfect 10 on vault, a 9.9 on bars and a 9.9 on floor, Neff has a way of making every move look effortless and certainly has the ability to make an instant impact in the lineups of any team in the nation.
